The “Kerry-Boxer” bill made its way through the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, despite bipartisan opposition to the bill. The legislation calls for an ambitious 20% reduction in carbon emissions by 2020, a number that will undoubtedly meet tough opposition by Senate Republicans and coal state Democrats. Montana Senator Max Baucus already voiced his displeasure with the number, saying he had “overall concerns” about the effects of a 20% cut. However, Baucus did pledge to work with Senate Democrats to craft climate change legislation.
Republicans boycotted the senate panel, preventing any amendments to the legislation. Under Senate rules, two Republicans needed to be present to debate and amend the bill. Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, a member of the Senate Environment and Public Works committee voted for the measure saying she is, “voting to bring this bill out of committee (anyway) because we need a signal to the world that America wants to be a leader” on climate change.
Following closely on the heels of ObamaCare, the Boxer-Kerry Cap and Trade bill has been inconspicuously moving through the Senate with a stealth goal to pass the bill before the Copenhagen Summit in a few weeks.
During a heated debate Sen. Barbara Boxer, Chairwoman of the Environment and Public Works committee refused to release a full economic analysis of the bill, to which Inhofe bristled, "I can only conclude that they don't want the pubic to know how much money this thing is going to cost."
Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) said of the coming
legislation, "This would be the
largest tax increase in the history of
Analysts believe the increased taxes and fees will cost the average American household upwards of $1,600 to $3,000 or more each and every year!
Making matters worse, scientists suggest Cap and Trade would have no measureable benefit--except to the federal government.

The Copenhagen Treaty has two stated goals:
· Transfer wealth from Industrial Nations (The United States) to Developing Countries.
· Dictate energy use and consumption in Industrial Nations (The United States)
Now, just so we are clear...
· Goal Number One is Global Socialism
· Goal Number Two is a Global Dictatorship
The Copenhagen Climate Treaty audaciously states:
“Industrialized countries have a dual obligation under the Treaty, representing their overall responsibility for keeping the world within the limits of the global carbon budget and ensuring that adaptation to the impacts of climate change is possible for the most vulnerable. This dual binding obligation takes the form of emissions reductions as well as the provision of support to developing countries.”
Lord Christopher Monckton, the former advisor for science policy to former British Prime Minister, and former President Ronald Reagan ally, Lady Margaret Thatcher, believes that if the U.S. signs any climate treaty coming out of the Copenhagen Climate Change Conference in December, it could subject the United States to a global dictatorship.

The devastating immediate economic impact of the Copenhagen Climate Treaty:

· Limit personal consumption of energy by law and costs = Loss of Freedom
· Hyper Energy Cost - Inflation
· ALL goods and materials to become more expensive = Double Digit Inflation
· Transportation to become more expensive = $10 per gallon gas prices
· Assure and accelerate the shift of economic growth and profitability from the U.S to emerging markets = Loss of Opportunity
· Increase Imports for emerging countries who will not be subject to the same carbon emissions limits = Unfair Competition, Increased Trade Deficit
· Add momentum to the movement away from the U.S. Dollar toward an alternate single or composite world reserve currency = One World Currency
· Increase the cost of Treasury borrowings = Ballooning Deficit
· Drive up federal and state taxes = Suffocating Taxes

Constitution - 2/3rds of Senate has to approve Treaty.
The U. S. Constitution mandates that treaty ratification must be advised and consented to by a two-thirds majority in the U.S. Senate. This would normally be a tall order for any President, if said President valued the Constitution.
An Obama advisor once said that he [Obama] regarded the U.S. Constitution as merely a piece of paper...and he saw it as a barrier to the things that the Left around the world want to do — and, therefore, they were going to find ways of circumventing it.
Let's compare the Copenhagen Climate Treaty to Cap & Trade.
The Wall Street Journal called Cap & Trade "the biggest tax in American history" and The Washington Times reported that cap-and-trade legislation will levy a $3.6 trillion gas-tax increase that will impact every American and important segments of our economy.
Cap & Trade will cause massive inflation, record unemployment and entire industrial sectors will flee the country in search of profits.
As dreadful as Cap & Trade would be for the

THIS MAY BE THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE OF OUR LIFETIME. If we do not stand firm and united against this treasonous treaty, the greatest country in the world may be forever subservient to a One World Order and it will have happened on our watch.
If Obama signs the Copenhagen Treaty and does not allow the Senate to ratify it, we as American’s will have to rise up and refuse to obey this foreign law or will no longer be free. In fact we will become a third world country. We have the right to do so because this will be un-constitutional, and they know it. Starting with the State governments, we must refuse to obey these international laws but if the States don’t do it, we must.
